About This Quiz

Throughout the 1940s, the Myers-Briggs personality test brought a whole new way of determining someone's unique personality type into the forefront of psychology. With four different letters making up 16 different types, the test can accurately tell you if you are more introverted or extroverted, more feeling or perceptive and more thinking or nurturing! Because we cannot stop experimenting with our own personality tests, we've morphed the famous test into our own version—the what kind of bear are you version! 

As you go through this quiz, our questions might seem to barely focus on you, but hang in there. You see, we have found that finding out how you answer indirect questions about a certain subject is the best way to figure out your true Myers-Briggs type. Our questions are designed to get inside your primal mind. After enough of your answers, it will be a breeze to figure out what kind of bear you are! 

Make sure you have your bearings before you get started. You wouldn't want to start a hike without your bear spray, and we want you to feel good about your journey. Answer our questions to the best of your ability, and we'll let you know if you're as cuddly as a koala or as snarling as a grizzly. Which one will it be?
